Nathalie Boutté - Crossing-over
Sep 07, 2017 — Oct 21, 2017
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present the first New York solo exhibition of works on paper by Nathalie Boutté.
Nathalie Boutté’s (French, b. 1967) handmade collages embrace photography, sculpture and painting. Using colored paper and a meticulous cutting and pasting process, the self-taught French artist creates mesmerizing re-interpretations of historic photographs. While appropriation is an essential part of Boutté’s work, the artist veers from her source material, breaking down and building back up the original image and its traditional interpretation.
"Crossing-over" features 22 of Boutté’s most recent collages comprised of thousands of small strips of Japanese paper cut by hand and assembled into feathery rows.
